single click to open file from project view

Hi-

Currently I need to double click in the "project" view to open a file in the editor. Is it possible to set single click to open a file? (PS-95.315)

Thanks-

Click on the "gear" icon in the Project view and enable the "Autoscroll to source" option.

This seems to be called "Open Files with single click" now.

Is there any way to make it behave similar to visual studio where the item you single click opens as a single pinned tab and when single clicking on another item opens that item in the same tab.

 

In other words, when i want to really open a file double-click but when i just want to peek at the file single click

Jones1876, there seems to be a custom plugin for that, please give it a try: https://plugins.jetbrains.com/plugin/12778-quick-file-preview
Also, the same request on our issue tracker: https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-130918

Is there any way to make it so when you open a file with a single click, the editor tab for that file is activated (like it is when you double-click a file)? As of right now, if I single click a file, glance at it, then hit Cmd-W to close it, it actually closes the Project View and not the editor tab for the file. If I double click the file, then this works as expected.
